The Russians decided it ended today. It seems that the Kennedy "break" was due to fear by the Russians that they'd get stung somehow so they had to do their own negotiating and fought for sometime after it might have been possible to quit. Hitler reported to have been given all scientific data to Japan. Very wet morning. Regular cloud burst. Major bawled about the 1000 lb experimental trap and the boys wasted time terribly on the new gallows. No excitement.
